This really limits the usefulness of the review/comment/grading functions, such as for showing correct citation format. Is there a plan to add this functionality?
James, neither the previous annotation tool nor the new DocViewer has formatted text functionality. If this is something you'd like to see added to DocViewer, please submit an idea through Ideas.
A feature idea for the ability to add formatting to SpeedGrader comments is in Product Radar status--Rich Text Editor in Speedgrader Comments --but this is specific to the Comment box at the bottom right of the SpeedGrader and does not apply to the annotation tools.
